“She was having like a tantrum. She was awful,” said Rebellion Bar and Urban Kitchen owner Seung Hong, noting that Rose “cursed out” the bartender at whom she threw food. “She was a horrible person.”

Rose was in New Orleans this week to perform at the Metropolitan Nightclub, and Hong said someone called Friday to try to secure a table at Rebellion for dinner. The restaurant’s reservations were full, however, so Hong told the caller he might be able to seat them after 9 p.m., but couldn’t guarantee a time. There were already three reservations on the books for parties of 10 or more people for the night, Hong said Saturday.

That group arrived at about 9:15 p.m., Hong said, and it included Ruby Rose, who he recognized from Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black.” Hong told the group it could be awhile before food came out from the kitchen because of the large tables already seated ahead of them, but Rose’s group opted to wait and was seated by about 9:30 p.m.

Rose’s party had appetizers within about 40 minutes, Hong said, with entrees following about 10 minutes after that. But, that seemed to be unsatisfactory, so Rose’s server asked Hong over to mediate the situation.

“I offered to comp the appetizers, but (Rose) was losing her cool, and then I offered to buy them a round of drinks,” Hong said. Rose declined the drinks, and Hong left the table to return to business. “One of my bartenders was walking by and could tell they were upset, and (Rose) threw food at him. … Ruby told my bartender that if she was a bigger man, she would kick my ass, meaning me.”

The bartender also offered drinks to the table, which were again declined, Hong said, and as the bartender left, he saw a french fry hit his shoulder.

“He thought maybe it was an accident, so he came back and he asked, ‘Is everything ok?’ And she picked up a handful of french fries and threw them at him. I think she was like … trying to be a bully,” Hong said.

Once the bartender relayed to Hong that french fries were being tossed, Hong asked Rose’s group to leave, which they did soon after.

“Ruby was already kind of pretty over the top upset, kind of laying into me, which — whatever, I’m in the service industry and it’s my job to please customers,” Hong said, adding later, “It was the first time I’ve ever had to ask someone to leave, and it was Ruby Rose.”
